Oct 23, 2023 | Public | 0 comments

Patient outcomes improve when patients are actively engaged in their health and informed of their care.

pCare’s partnership with the Moffitt Cancer Center has led to the ongoing integration and support of its end-to-end interactive patient care system (IPS) within the newly opened inpatient surgical facility, Moffitt McKinley Hospital.

Each 350-square-foot room within the 10-story building of the new Moffitt McKinley Hospital is equipped with a Smart TV running pCare’s IPS, including the Digital Whiteboard, which displays key information; TV entertainment; and BYOD (bring your own device) and casting capabilities, allowing patients to pair their personal devices with the pCare system. The patient engagement integration also includes Room Connect, the powerful digital door display that shows vital patient information at the entrance of their room and a user-friendly bedside tablet to navigate the system.
